Keauhou    (0 Votes)
Keauhou finds passion and joy in the performance, preservation, and perpetuation of traditional Hawaiian music.

The name, "Keauhou," was suggested by Hailama Farden, while the trio played music at the Kamehameha School's Midkiff Library. This library is home to the waa (Hawaiian canoe) named "Makani Hou o Keauhou," under which the group performed. Translated as "the new wind of Keauhou," this waa became the inspiration for the group name, "Keauhou." While the Hawaiian language offers a multiplicity of meanings and translations, the groups name can be translated as "the new/renewed generation."

This name defines the young trio, Kahanuola Solatorio, and brothers, Nicholas and Zachary Lum, as they strive to bring forth inspiration from Hawaiian music of the eras preceding them, and contribute to a renewed respect and interest for the incomparable beauty of traditional Hawaiian music.

These three graduates of the Kamehameha Schools Kapālama found their musical roots through their involvement in the many musical and cultural opportunities offered at Kamehameha Schools. They sang in the Concert Glee Club, played in the Band, and both Lum brothers held the esteemed positions as their class' student director in the world-renowned Song Contest.

Kahanuola and Nicholas recently graduated with their Master's Degree in the fields of Education and Hawaiian language, respectively, at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa. Zachary is currently the Choral Director of the prestigious Kamehameha School's Concert Glee Club and also a Master's candidate in the field of Ethnomusicology at the University of Hawaii at Mānoa. All three are active and passionate educators and cultural practitioners in their fields.

In 2008, Keauhou was awarded first place in the unamplified traditional Hawaiian music contest, "Ka Himeni Ana," held annually at the Hawaii Theater. In 2017, Keauhou took top honors at the Nā Hōkū Hanoha

Josh Tatofi    (0 Votes)
2018 GRAMMY® Nominee & Multiple Na Hoku Hanohano Award-Winner

Hawaiian Music Live calls him the Polynesian Luther Vandross, which aptly describes the soothing voice of Josh Tatofi. Honolulu-born Josh Tatofi comes from a musical lineage - his father is Tivani Tatofi, original member of the acclaimed island/reggae music trio, Kapena.

Josh began performing in his teens, and even recorded with the popular Maui band, 'Ekolu. But as Josh's idols are Vandross and Peabo Bryson, he has gravitated towards R&B slow jams, and with his smooth voice and phrasing, his own elegant Hawaiian songs.

His album, Pua Kiele, was named Island Music Album of the Year in the 2017 Na Hoku Hanohano awards, where Josh won the coveted Male Vocalist of the Year award.

Hiroshima    (4 votes)
Hiroshima, a group whose music falls between R&B, pop, world music, and jazz, has long had its own niche. The band integrates traditional Japanese instruments into their musical blend and has created a rich sound both utterly unique and irresistibly relatable. Worldwide sales in excess of 4 million and multiple gold records attests to their appeal.

In the three-plus decades since Hiroshima first convened, the Los Angeles-based ensemble of Dan Kuramoto (keyboards/woodwinds/composer/producer), virtuoso June Kuramoto (koto/composer), Kimo Cornwell (piano/keyboards/composer), Danny Yamamoto (drums/percussion), Dean Cortez (bass) have blended jazz, R&B, pop, and rock with traditional Japanese folk music and instruments. The resulting sound was a pioneering voice in the contemporary world music movement of the late 20th century.

Ever evolving, the multi Grammy-nominated group, highlighted by the sound of June Kuramoto's shimmering koto (noted by Stanley Clarke to be the world's best) creates
music and sounds totally unique -- with depth, heart and soul.

VIP Seating includes choice of seat in Reserved Premium Seating.
